7:02 am
very sexy man. >> i don't know. >> you don't know? >> no. >> you might really be surprised. it might be you. >> we'll have much on that. first calls for a peaceful transition of power from president obama. there he is touching down in greece just hours ago for his final international trip as president. back here at home anti-trump protests like this one at ohio state university escalating. abc's tom llamas is here with more on the trump's election and who will be joining his white house. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the trump team coming together despite some controversy over his first hires. this as some of trump's closest allies are giving us a glimpse of what may be ahead. trump loyalist rudy giuliani may soon be joining president-elect donald trump in the white house. giuliani saying he won't be trump's attorney general but he may be secretary of state. both giuliani and former u.n.
7:03 am
>> john would be a very good choice. >> is there anybody better? >> maybe me. i don't know. >> reporter: but already one of trump's first decisions is coming under scrutiny. elevating his campaign ceo stephen bannon to chief strategist and white house counselor. >> don't believe the media. don't believe the establishment. do not believe the permanent political class. we are on the right side of history. >> reporter: bannon who ran breitbart led the charge to turn the conservative site into a platform from house minority leader nancy pelosi this blunt statement, there must be no sugar coating the reality that a white nationalist has been named chief strategist for the trump administration. trump advisers slamming those descriptions of bannon. >> he's been the general of this campaign and, frankly, people should look at the full resume. he's got a harvard business degree. he's a naval officer.
7:04 am
>> reporter: in his first news conference since the election president obama revealing that during that oval office meeting last thursday, he told trump he should reach out to the groups that opposed him and realize the importance of his post-election decisions. >> how he staffs the first steps he takes, the first impressions he makes, the reset that can happen after an election. >> reporter: obama telling americans to give president-elect trump a chance and offered his successor stern advice. >> there are going to be certain elms of his temperament that will not serve him well unless he recognizes them and corrects them. >> reporter: and before he wrapped up his news conference president obama also had some advice for his own party saying they have to spend the time in small towns and states like iowa to create political bases that deliver votes and victories on election day. >> tom, thanks.
7:05 am
"settle for more" but let's look at these appointments. stephen bannon, reince priebus, maybe rudy giuliani. to the victors go the spoils. >> absolutely right and trump is entitled to surround himself with the people he most trusts. bannon is the only one that's caused a lot of controversy. sort of like a tale of two cities where you've got reince priebus who is more establishment which trump has been railing against and stephen bannon who spent his entire career -- >> he says they are going to be eq that mean inside the white house. this could set up kind of a civil war. >> it could be awkward but what i'm hearing is steve bannon will be in charge. he's the trump whisperer. >> even thoe he's not the chief of staff. >> unusual situation because normally the chief of staff would be the one who is. we're being told steve bannon will have the ear of donald trump. i don't know what that means for reince priebus. maybe president-elect trump needs somebody to work the hill and staff decisions. >> that would suggest perhaps president obama was wrong in his
7:06 am
think trump is ideological and thinks he's pragmatic. >> both are true. i think both are true. he is not ideological and that he is pragmatic and i think steve bannon though he is a controversial figure has advised donald trump very well. it was flailing until bannon came in who doesn't run political campaigns but who completely understands these working class americans who have had it with washington and the so-called establishment. >> what do you say to those who say it's bringing a wte >> i don't know there's evidence of that. >> the breitbart headlines. >> the breitbart headline, his defenders, they're absolutely controversial but what his defenders say is he's not responsible for every single headline that went up on breitbart while he was the executive chairman and that that website is known for being provocative and so they're looking for cliques. now it definitely appeals to a segment of the so-called
7:07 am
that brush or steve bannon with that brush but no question this man is controversial? we'll talk more about your book coming up in the next half hour. you are called 2016 your year of trump and it really details all of your encounter, the tough encounters. what does that tell you about what kind of president he will be and how can you mutt that all aside in covering him? >> i have a year of doing it so now it's easy to cover him because we're out of that weird place that we were in. it definitely poses challenges when he was comi a relentlessly and causing security issues in my life and the life of my family but i did it. and it was a test of me as a person and a professional and i think my team and i at "the kelly file" managed to navigate it pretty well. what it tells me about what kind of president he will, listen, no question he is thin-skinned and can be mean-spirited and vindictive but my own experience with him proves that he's able to let things go if he so
7:08 am
a bone for nine months but finally when i went to see him at trump tower and believe me, i was not conciliatory toward him, we got past it. i think he has a magnanimous piece of him. he has a charming piece to him as well and while i think trump doesn't like it when he feels attacked if he feels you're open-minded or neutral towards him he becomes a bit more open-mind. he often fee as tacked when he's not is often the problem. today. we'll talk about that. donald trump, roger ailes in our next half hour. now to new questions about the internet's possible effect on the election. after fake news stories trended online, facebook and google are now reportedly taking steps to curb those sites. our chief business and economics correspondent rebecca jarvis is here so, rebecca, how are they responding? >> well, robin, they are responding big this morning and if you've spent any time on the internet and social media chances are you've seen these fake news stories but might not
7:09 am
the popular vote and we found this high up in the search results, a fake story claiming donald trump did. now, votes are still coming in, but hillary clinton is ahead in the popular vote by a wide margin, then there's this on facebook, trump loses support of police union after saying tulsa shooting cop choked. that's not true either. well, now google and facebook are targeting how the creator of these fake news sites make money. that's advertising. google announcing overnight it will prevent websites that push phony news from sensitizing network and facebook announcing it is updating steps on that too. >> thank you. we move to that breaking news from missouri. an accused killer escaped from jail after a door was left open. pierre thomas has the latest on the search, good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, george. that's right. a massive manhunt now under way for a convict that police believe is armed and dangerous.
7:10 am
snuck out of the county jail in missouri last night wearing no shoes when he escaped through a door that was open while construction work was going on at the jail. they believe he stole a dodge pickup truck two hours later with a deer rifle inside. scary situation unfolding for the people in that area, george. >> okay, pierre, thanks very much. >> scary, indeed. now to that stunning verdict in that hot car trial georgia. justin ross harris found guilty on all eight charges convicted of murdering his son by leaving him locked in a car for hours. abc's steve osunsami is in marietta, georgia, with more. good morning, steve. >> reporter: good morning to you, robin. this was a surprising result for many who have been following this case closely from the very beginning. jurors not only agreed this father was negligent but that he intended to kill his son. >> we find the defendant guilty.
7:11 am
sat nearly stone-faced after they delivered blow after blow. >> reporter: guilty on all eight charges from murder to child cruelty and seconding with an underage girl which prosecutors say was happening while his son was dying outside his atlanta office in this silver suv. the jury of six women and six men decided that 22-month-old cooper harris was killed intentionally after being strapped into this rear-facing car seat by his father and left for more than seven hours in parked car on a summer day in 2014. >> you had to accept that somebody is capable of this level of evil. it really affected everybody. >> reporter: harris failed to convince jurors that this was an accident. that he simply forgot to drop his son off at day care on his way in to work that morning. his now ex-wife even took his side. >> he must have forgot. >> reporter: during deliberations last week jurors asked again to look at a police station video where harris and the boy's mother are heard
7:12 am
authorities. >> did you say too much? >> all i did was tell them the events of the day? >> reporter: his lawyers are planning to appeal. >> from the moment we met ross harris, we've never once ever once wavered in our absolute belief that he's not guilty of what he's just been convicted of. >> reporter: harris is looking at life in prison and he'll be sentenced in this courthouse behind me here in marietta, georgia, on december 5th. george. >> much. thousand to that smoke and fire tearing across the southeast. eight states battling flames right now and abc's eva pilgrim is on the scene in chimney rock, north carolina, where firefighters have been working all through the night. good morning, eva. >> reporter: good morning, george. you can see the fire coming down the mountain. we're staying across the street. trees could fall down here. this morning, there's no end in sight to the flames. flames crawling up and down mountains all across the
7:13 am
alaska battling 42 wildfires across eight states. authorities say many deliberately set. >> we do also ask for cooperation with anyone who has information on anyone who may have started any of these fires. we do believe most of these fires are man-made. >> reporter: in north carolina, the party rock fire around chimney rock forcing a thousand people out of their homes, mandatory evacuations in place. the ongoing drought creating dry conditions fueling the fires. some burning for more than a mo forecast any time soon. for now you can see the fire is moving very slowly down the mountain jumping over the roads as it continues to move down. >> we could have these challenges through march. >> reporter: the widespread smoke prompting air quality warnings, code red in western north carolina, orange in parts of georgia, some residents wearing masks. >> just went in my lungs and i had to get out of here.
7:14 am
leaves on the trees, when those leaves fall, it can reignite the flames. michael. >> all right, dangerous situation there, thank you, eva. let's turn to david kerley standing by reagan national airport where it sounds like there was a scary moment in the sky on monday, david. >> reporter: yeah, it was a very scary moment, michael. a couple of pilots took evasive action thinking they saw a drone and injured two of their own flight attendants. the investigation this morning into what the pilots of a plane with 54 passengers coming towards them leading to their severe action. the pilots making a sharp turn at 9,000 feet in the air. two flight attendants thrown in the cabin and injured. once on the ground the pilots said they thought it was a drone coming towards them. >> they see a flash. they see something at an altitude they would not expect another airplane or something to be flying and so they instinctively make a sharp turn to get away from whatever it is. >> reporter: the two flight attendants were treated and
7:15 am
sightings of drones are up 40% compared to all of last year. >> we almost got hit by a drone. >> reporter: the worry what happens if it hits a passenger plane. >> i'm just hovering. >> there are several efforts like this one to come up with technology to counter drones. this government funded corporation can overpower a drone's signal taking over control of the drone and flying it to safety. of course, now a several hundred miles an hour has to make a split-second decision and that's what those canadian pilots did yesterday, robin, to get out of the way of what they thought was a drone. >> they make those quick decisions, you're right. amy with the other top stories including tourists trapped by an earthquake. >> a u.s. warship arrived to help evacuate thousands of residents who are stranded in towns cut off by monday's powerful earthquake in new zealand. a nine-story building is in
7:16 am
there. damage right now stichlted in the billions. meanwhile, those cows we showed you yesterday stranded there on that hill after a landslide have now been rescued. well, some u.s. service members and cia operatives could face charges for the alleged torture of detainees in afghanistan. the international criminal court says there is evidence americans tortured more than 80 prisoners back in 2003 and 2004. a full investigation is possible which could lead to charges. take a moment to pay tribute to a pioneering journalist, gwen ifill. the role model for so many reporters, both young and old, has died of cancer at the age of 61. >> good evening, i'm judy woodruff. >> and i'm gwen ifill. >> reporter: one-half of the first all female anchor team on nightly news. >> how are you? >> reporter: gwen ifill once told "the new york times" that as a little girl watching the news, she would look up and not see anyone who looked like me in
7:17 am
you're bringing a different life experience to your interpretation. >> reporter: the trailblazing journalist born in 1955 graduated from simmons college recalling her first news internship at the boston herald american on the pbs series "makers." >> i call myself the only only because there were no other black women really in that situation at that time. but that didn't stop me. >> reporter: and nothing could stop her. >> is it fair for americans who fear government to fear you? >> reporter: ifill covering politics for three a fixture behind the sture journalists also watching the news every night. >> as long as i remember there's someone on the on the other side piece of equipment, the camera, i have to take what i do seriously every single day. >> i love what she said so many types. she wanted to bring light, not heat to issues and i also loved
7:18 am
on facebook. i saw that and it really was remarkable. you all had such a relationship. >> she reached out when she was first diagnosed and i think about what stuart scott said you don't lose your battle, you know this, you don't lose your battle to cancer, you beat cancer by how you live and the manner in which you live and she was a shining example of that. wonderful the things president obama said about her. >> i was on both sides of the table from her and first covered the clinton campaign, the clinton courthouse, she was fierce and fearless, a very, very tough reporter but then when the day was human being. >> she'll be missed. >> she sure will. >> let's go to rob with the weather. >> raw and rainy day ahead of us. normally we wouldn't celebrate this but we need it in new york and boston. heavier bands rotating in. severe drought in much of the northeast. will snow be dropped in the intermountain west and plains and much colder air behind this and lake-effect know this weekend and the cold will get all the way down into the deep

out there. a virus that's serious, like hiv, but it hasn't been talked about much. a virus that's been almost forgotten. it's hepatitis c. one in 30 boomers has hep c, yet most don't even know it. that's because hep c can hide in your body silently for years, even decades, without symptoms and it's not tested for in routine blood work. if left untreated, hep c can cause liver damage, even liver cancer. but there's important information for us: the cdc recommends all baby boomers get tested for hep c. all it takes is a simple one-time blood test. and if you have hep c, it can be cured. be sure to ask your doctor to get tested for hep c. for us it's time to get tested. it's the only way to know for sure.

pins and needles all morning, one of the most highly anticipated magazines of the year, "people's sexiest man alive" issue. >> david beckham graced the cover last year. we are moments away from out who out who graces the cover. michael, what is it like? >> they only put me in there because of my son. you have to ask him. >> we have a lot more coming up. first more from megyn ke is out today and a quick look back at her rocky relationships with donald trump and her former boss roger ailes. >> you've called women you don't like fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals. >> the feud began with that first question. >> what i say is what i say and honestly, megyn, if you don't like it, i'm sorry. i've been very nice to you although i probably could not be based on the way you've treated me but i wouldn't do that.
7:32 am
insults followed calling her a bimbo, unprofessional and crazy. >> you could see there was blood coming out of her eye, blood coming out of her wherever. >> i was referring to nose, ears, and only a deviant would think of that. >> i became the story. you never want to be the story when you're a news person. >> reporter: now in her new book "settle for more" -- >> it's a personal book. roo he vrieling and under an embargo. they would have to hurt you if you found anchor says her interview with donald trump began six months before he announced his run and claimed he tried to charm her and offer her trips and gifts clearly meant to slip coverage. >> i had a meeting with donald trump. >> reporter: she found herself part of the story after gretchen carlson filed a sexual harassment suit against roger ailes. after carlson spoke out kelly told her bosses that at the start of her career, ailes made unwanted advances against her
7:33 am
shortly after ailes was fired from fox. and megyn kelly is back right now. thanks for coming back. let's start right there. you made that call to fox co-chairman lackland murdoch. what did you tell him? >> well, i mean, listen, i wrestled with what to do. i wasn't sure what the truth was about roger. >> you knew what he did to you. >> exactly. and that's one of the bizarre things. i knew my own experience but he and i had gone on to have nine years of a healthy working relationship and so in my mind i interested in me, that he was having a marital difficulty, perhaps he was just interested in having an extramarital affair. and i didn't -- >> he was explicit about that? as explicit as you could be. i mean it was very on the nose and then it culminated in a physical attempt to be with me which i rejected in his office and then i -- >> he touched you. >> he tried to kiss me three times. >> so i rejected that and when i rejected that he asked me when
7:34 am
as soon as i left his office i called a lawyer and i did bring the matter to a supervisor at fox news. >> years ago. >> years ago when it happened to me. and that person vouched for roger's character, assured me he was a good man, he was likely just smitten and that i should try to avoid him which is what i did. >> as you know roger ailes put out a statement through his attorney that says, i deny the allegations megyn makes about me. i worked tirelessly to promote her career. as megyn rose, watch that interview and decide for your several. this is what he was referring to on charlie rose. >> i really care about roger. and he's been nothing but good to me and he's been very loyal and he's had my back. >> so how do you square that when what you're writing now. >> both things can be true. ray woman can be harassed and go on to have a good working relationship with the man harassing her and that is what happened in my case.
7:35 am
that was the proper course to pursue and sure enough, he stopped. and i was down in the d.c. bureau when this was happening. he was up in new york. this is all laid out in the book in great detail. but he stopped and we went on to have a healthy working relationship and what he said about promoing me and having my back is true. and it was one of the reasons why even i found it hard to believe that he was a serial harasser, george, when the lawsuit broke and then women started coming forward anonymously but it soon became clear upon reading the allegations that at least an investigation was necessary. >> so did any part of you think looking back you should have come out earlier publicly? >> listen, it's hard to say to to that because i know now the number of women targeted and it's disturbing, but realistically and this is one reason i wrote about it in the book, realistically that would have been a suicide mission for me and my career because i had
7:36 am
megyn kelly of today. i had no power and he was on the cover of industry magazines as the most powerful man in news. there was no one to go to. if i had gone to the general counsel of the company it would have been me first year person -- >> leads to a tough question for fox news as well. if gretchen carlson hadn't sued, would roger ailes still be the chairman of fox news? >> i think so. i think so. i mean because we all have arbitration clauses which prevented us from fil lawsuits which her filing publicly was a big step in this whole process. i'll tell you, what i wanted was for it to be an open and honest investigation into him. that's all i really wanted because i didn't know whether it was just me, just gretchen, who -- is this a serial problem or not and that's why i called lackland murdoch to tell me, it didn't bring me any joy but to tell him it did happen to me ten years earlier and that they needed to take a hard look at
7:37 am
and within days they had announced they had hired paul weiss and i cooperated with that investigation and i think it wound up as it should have have let's talk more about donald trump. take us inside that meeting where you basically tried to bury the hatchet. what did you say and do? >> so the actual meeting was off the record so i don't want to get into the specific content. i went over there. i walked in. and he gave me a nice greeting. he hugged me. >> he hugged you. >> yes, which i -- >> how did you accept that. >> well, i talk about it in the to be hugging this man who had tried to torment me for nine months and who had endangered my security and all sorts of things that are detailed in the book. but i accepted it for the gesture it was which i think was a goodwill gesture to try to say if not i'm sorry, then let's move on. which is what i was doing there. so i neither apologized to him nor did he apologize to me and after the meeting we discussed
7:38 am
campaign against me. we tabled that but was a reset of sorts that worked for us. >> you had a tough conversation with your daughter, your daughter yeardley. she said she was afraid of him. >> so she's a recurring character in this book as are all three of my children but yeardley is amazing and i talk about how a year ago after i went to the fortune most powerful women's conference she said, what is that? i said it's a gathering of really strong women who celebrate their there with me and she said, are we two of them? and then a year not quite a year later she joined me at the presidential debate in detroit and that's when she told me she was afraid of donald trump. i had never revealed to her any of the things trump had done. president-elect trump had done. but she is 5 and she hears things in this world and one of the lowest points was when she came home and asked me what a bimbo was and i just thought,
7:39 am
thought she was being honored at the most powerful women's conference had learned a new word which was one of the low points of the year. >> i'll bet it was. what's next for you? publicly, everyone knows your contract is up next year. can you stay at fox after all this? >> oh, sure, i mean, i can easily stay at fox. i can go hopefully anywhere i want. i don't think anything happened in that the past year that limited that. i think trump and i are -- president-elect trump. we're all getting used to that are on better terms and i'm grateful fox news has given me the 12 years i've had there and want me to stay and in my opinion the murdochs who are running it are honorable men would want to do what's right and -- is there do you want to stay. >> i'm figuring that out. it's not really appropriate to discuss with you, george, i'm on "good morning america" but i'm figuring that out. as much as i love my job i love those three little lives that my husband and i brought into the
7:40 am
settle for more and that's the name of the book. >> thanks for coming in. our big board that "making a murderer" bombshell. why the judge ordered one of the convicted killers should be set free. we're going to talk about that when we come back in two minutes. go good is in every blue diamond almond. a good that comes in 20 flavors from whole natural to wasabi and soy sauce. and once good gets going, there's no stopping it. get your good going. blue diamond almonds.

back back here, time for our big board. our team of insiders standing by live for more on this morning's top stories. we've got our legal team with us, we got sunny, dan is here. so we'll talk about legal issues. all right, so let's start with that new twist in the "making a murderer" case. a federal judge is ordering that brendan dassey be released from prison after he and his uncle steven avery were found guilty of murder nearly a decade ago. now, this has taken some time for this. why is he being released now? >> his conviction was overturned in august basically the judge at the time said i'll effectively
7:43 am
this ruling. the prosecution did appeal. but at this point the judge is basically saying, look, i'm not going to keep him in there forever considering the ruling that i issued. now, prosecutors are now effectively saying, well wooshgs ale's go file an emergency appeal to try to make sure he stays behind bars. i think it's unlikely that they're going to get that. and as a result i think it's likely that dassey will be released in the next couple of weeks but sounds like prosecu prosecutors are also going to he could get convicted again although i think that's unlikely based on the lack of evidence. >> with the possibility of dassey getting out, what is the latest on his uncle's case? >> totally separate case, right. the case against brendan dassey in my view was always weak. the case against steven avery is a totally different story. from the defense's perspective they want to retest the blood to see if maybe it was planted. they want to be able to do a type of testing called carbon
7:44 am
blood. i don't think that's going to make much of a difference. their lawyer thinks it will. their lawyer has been saying again and again, sorry, steven avery's lawyer is saying again and again he will eventually be exonerated. i think it will be very difficult. >> before we weigh in on your case, what do you think on this, sunny. >> i think it's interesting we're even talking about this case because of the documentary and so it leads to that notion of transparency. we don't have cameras in a lot of courtrooms, not even inside the supreme court fact that we need those cameras in courtrooms and need those in the supreme court because i think it uncovers a lot of things. i mean look at the confession in this case. this confession was beyond the pale but we only know about it because of the cameras >> that's it. good point. >> i love having our legal team here. tag team. >> this is awesome. why don't we do this every day. >> i love when i don't need advice. all right. now up next we need you both for this too. they say diamonds are forever
7:45 am
manhattan couple. "the new york post" reports a man is suing his ex-fiancee over a $125,000 engagement ring after their wedding was canceled at the last minute and, sunny, oh, man. >> that's a lot of money. >> neither one will comment on the case but could the court make her return the ring? >> the court could, michael. you know what's interesting. this is the question that i get the most from our viewers, i get this question almost every week. who gets the ring? most states involved in matters of the heart so most states say, you know what, i don't care who is at fault bottom line is if the engagement is broken, give the ring back. those states are new york, pennsylvania, iowa, kansas, new jersey, new mexico and wisconsin. but there are a couple of states that say, i do want to get involved. those states are california, texas, they say, you know what, if you are the dumper, the dumpee gets to keep the ring. >> the dumpee.
7:46 am
>> you know what i'll tell my son, robin, i'll say give her my ring, because family heirlooms are protected so she dumps you, she breaks that engagement off you get the ring back. the other thing i'll advise him, dent propose on a holiday. if you propose on christmas or hanukkah, many courts say that was a gift that wasn't part of the engagement and you get to keep it. >> that's a lot of work, sunny. >> sorry. >> a question of whether it's a conditional gift or not. is it getting married as opposed to on a holiday where you basically said it could have been a christmas gift. >> this is a question for everybody. we know what they say legally but what about just social etiquette. do you give the ring back? >> you know what, you dump me, i'm not giving the ring back. but look at mariah carey. mariah carey gets to keep her ring. >> it's only damages. basically to me the only reason you keep it is damages to say, you know what, i was so wronged and i'd be entitled to x amount
7:47 am
i'll go home. >> sunny went to the what would mariah do defense. >> dan, if you break up with someone you got to suck it up. >> $125,000 damages clause. basically said you break up with me that's how much this is costing you. >> no mas. coming up in two minutes finally time. we'll reveal the one and only "people" magazine sexiest man alive. ean better than a manual. he said sure, but don't just get any one. go pro with oral-b. oral-b's rounded brush head cups your teeth to break up plaque and rotates to sweep it away. and oral-b crossaction delivers a clinically proven superior clean vs. sonicare diamondclean. my mouth feels super clean! oral-b. know you're getting a superior clean.

7:52 am
don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily ...and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis the right treatment for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you.

8:15 am
>> reporter: experts say secret monitoring may hurt your children and your relationship with them in the long run. julie lythcott-haims is author of "how to raise an adult." >> every moment is effectively saying, i do not trust you in the slightest. >> how do you tell them you trust them when you spy on them? >> wow, i hope they just know that i do trust them and that i'm doing this just to protect them. >> reporter: using the app christine discovers isabella is texting someone she thinks is a teenager. but when christine calls the number, she gets a surprise. it's an adult. >> she thought she was talking to a friend and it turned out that it wasn't. >> reporter: christine blocked the caller. still it was a scary moment. >> went through every scenario. meeting somebody. kidnapping. >> reporter: christine knew she had to confront her daughter which meant confessing about the spyware but isabella came clean first. >> she came down the stairs and

8:17 am
can torpedo everything. >> we believe parents should monitor their youngest children online and help navigate those waters but for the older kids we want parents to have ongoing empowered conversations to make sure those kids can make those safe and smart decisions on their owns. parents can go blue in their face monitoring them all day but they're not always going to be there. >> i also believe, you got two sons. >> t.j. has a young daughter. you have a littl parps is not just a matter of making sure the kid is safe but for the parent's peace of mind. not that the child did anything to break trust, the parent just needs that comfort to know i got an eye on everything. >> you bring up trust and now i want to ask you both about that. as a pediatrician do you feel that that could damage the trust between -- >> well, i think it could. you know, if -- as a parent, the idea of bubble wrapping your child and protecting them until
8:18 am
is comforting but if your child doesn't trust you as they hit the teen years facing decisions about alcohol, drugs, will they turn to you for guidance? i worry that if they don't feel there's trust, those tough issues they're not going to come to you and could be riskier. >> aren't there some times you know your child and know something is not right here and want to weigh in. >> again, we want parents to empower their kids. this may be an option the parents need to take. that phone isft the parent, paid for by the parent and that's the responsibility till they turn 18. >> you sound like my parents now. i bought this phone. >> i'll take you out. >> this is a serious conversation to have and i know one that parents struggle with. it's about spying. i know we're running out of time. is spying a bad thing? what if you let your kid know we're going to keep an eye -- >> i think you need to set up rules up front as to what's
8:19 am
that you're going to sit down and go over it together because that's not acceptable. >> work together. >> technology, set ground rules and have ongoing conversations about your kids about safety. >> you're the best. >> dr. besser. t.j., you too. >> coming up, the booted couple is here live, terra and sasha. ? beautiful just the way you
